Blue Collar Comedy star Bill Engvall is just a guy. He´s been one his whole life. He can´t help it; he was born that way. And that makes him an expert on the subject. For the record, here´s the official definition of a guy: a person who doesn´t think before he speaks. He can´t. He´s not that deep. Because a guy has only three basic needs: eating, sleeping, and sex. That´s it. Just a Guy chronicles a lifetime in pursuit of those needs. In this memoir, Bill Engvall takes you on the rollicking ride of his life, including his childhood in Texas and adolescence in Arizona (where he became a fixture in local emergency rooms, the result of massive amounts of non-thinking behavior while trying to impress girls or torture his sisters); following his dream as a stand-up comic and, gulp, singer; and his brief stint in children´s theater while sharing the stage and the back of a van with the director´s dog. You´ll also hear about his bumbling and riotous courtship of, and then marriage to, Gail, the love of his life. And finally, Bill talks about fatherhood and remaining, to this day, a well-meaning but flawed parent. Through it all, Bill gamely stumbles along, struggling to maintain a facade of confidence and control. Far from a superhero, Bill Engvall is an everyday Everyman, the poster boy for normal. The result is disarming, perceptive, wildly funny, and unexpectedly moving. Just a Guy will make you laugh out loud and tug at your heart. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Bill Engvall.

This is an audiobook about UFOs, but with a difference. It is authored by someone who has worked with them and knows about them from the inside. Benjamin Creme sees the presence of UFOs as planned and of immense value for the people of Earth. According to Creme, the UFOs and the people in them are engaged in a spiritual mission to ease humanity´s lot and to save this planet from further and faster destruction. Our own planetary hierarchy, led by Maitreya, the world teacher, now living among us, works tirelessly with our space brothers and sisters in a fraternal enterprise to restore sanity to this Earth. Creme shows how all the planets in our solar system are inhabited, but on physical levels beyond human sight, the so-called etheric planes. The spacecraft are constructed on the same principle; they too are in etheric matter and have complete control of energies in space. Our space brothers are responsible not only for crop circles, but also for preparing the way on Earth for a new technology of light that will give us unlimited power from the sun. When we banish war forever and are endeavoring to live in right relationship, that technology will be ours. For the spiritual hierarchy of both our own and the sister planets of our system, right human relationship involves the end of competition and the beginning of an era of cooperation, with sharing, justice, and freedom as its hallmarks. The audiobook also addresses the emergence of new and more inclusive forms of education, which will be needed as we experience a huge shift in consciousness and a growing awareness of the richness of life ahead, unfettered by the stranglehold of commercialism and the dominance of market forces. According to the author, the truth will soon be apparent for all to see, awakening humanity to their own divinity and the establishment of the rule of spiritual law on Earth. 1. Language: English.

Whether your heart is burdened or bursting with joy, nothing satisfies quite like talking things over with another woman. Regardless of the paths our lives take, all women are ´´sisters´´-we speak a common language; we share a universal bond. Because the hopes and dreams that both burden and give flight to a woman´s heart dwell within all of us, we create relationships that are intensely rich, precious and prized. Thus, we comfort and encourage each other; we help each other through life´s ups and downs; we know each other´s experiences as if they were our own; we are a blessing to each other. As this book of beautiful, inspirational life lessons reveals, sharing the experiences of our lives imbues us with a wisdom the soul reveres: Nothing happens without God´s permission. 1.
